Mak­ing your bed can change your life, ac­cord­ing to a book writ­ten by ex-Navy Seal Ad­mi­ral Wil­liam H. McRaven (ac­tu­ally ti­tled Make Your Bed: Lit­tle Things That Can Change Your Life ... And Maybe the World).

He be­lieves that com­plet­ing that first sim­ple task of the day will give you the mo­ti­va­tion to do more through­out the day.

McRaven says that our bed is a re­flec­tion of our pride, dis­ci­pline and per­sonal habits — so if we can’t be both­ered to look af­ter this sim­ple thing, then what else will we let slide?

Look­ing at my un­made bed right now, I think there is some­thing in this.

I have been let­ting a lot of things slide, and it’s time to get ship-shape be­cause tiny things can have a big ef­fect on how we feel, par­tic­u­larly how in con­trol we feel.

And so I must go now and straighten the bed and do some laun­dry. Af­ter that — world dom­i­na­tion.
